Inaudible – Coporate Propaganda

time March 4th by Pierre authorTags: , , , ,

muti054w

Artist: Inaudible
Title: Corporate Propaganda
Cat # Muti054
UPC # 705105139609
Tracklisting:
01: Corporate Propaganda 4:24
02: Dog Logic 4:49
03: Storm Therapy 5:49

Now we’re talking, Inaudible really shows how Gltich Hop should sound!
First of all I can’t understand how Dov keeps finding all these gems and releases them via Muti Music, the quality of all his releases is very high.

Inaudible hails from Great Britain and I must say that’s it’s a rather new name for me, I’ve seen the name around but I believe this is the first time I had the opportunity to listen to his music. On “Corporate Propaganda” Inaudible gives us three hardhiting tunes yet the bear a real melodic and groovy sound to them, just as as I want this music to be. The music resembles a bit of that The Glitch Mob is doing both as a band and as soloartists.

This could very well be one of 2010′s best electronic release cause I utterly and truly love the sound that Inaudible and presented to his audience.

Mimosa is at it again bringing heavy original joints into solid mixing. After releasing more of a dubstep chill vibe on recent EP release he shows us all he still got the bass flowing out with his signature glitchy highs and booming bass.

This man is soaring to the top of the list. I’ll never forget when first heard his tracks over year ago now and thinking wow I want to see this guy live! This mix is a prime example of what I want to be doing in the future. Be able to just play all tracks that I’ve done and just rock out yet have emotions attached no matter how low the freq go.

Mimosa – False Idols Mix

Track List:
1. MiM0SA – iN Search of Beauty
2. PantyRaid vs. MiM0SA – Chaos Control
3. MiM0SA – Days Go By (ReMiXx)
4. MartyParty vs. MiM0SA – The Perfect Flaw
5. MiM0SA – Looking Back
6. MiM0SA – California Rude Boy
7. MiM0SA – LSD Excursions
8. NastyNasty – Python Kiss (MiM0SA ReMiXxx)

Mimosa – Psychedelic Stereo

time February 22nd by Pierre authorTags: , , , ,

muti052w

Artist: Mimosa
Title: Psychedelic Stereo
Cat # Muti052
UPC # 705105139401
Tracklisting:
1. Psychedelic Stereo    3:37
2. Pandora                     3:18
3. Keys To The City        3:28
4. Julia’s Labyrinth         3:03

Mimosa is one of my favorite artists on Muti Music for sure. But I really don’t know what to think about this one. I can’t say it’s bad but it’s not the Mimosa that I’m used to hear. Mimosa has focused less on the bass this time and implemented a more sound a bit more influenced from ordinary Dub music.

“Psychedelic Stereo” is by no means a bad record but I don’t get the same wicked feeling that I got from the last output “Flux for Life”, but that one on the other hand was one of my absolute favorites when it comes to this kind of music. I assume that “Flux for Life” was such a bomb that my expectations for this one was somewhat to high.

We get four new tracks; the titel track, “Pandora”, “The Keys to the City” and “Julia’s Labyrith”.
All and all a good release from Mimosa and Muti but not the as good as I had hoped for.

Afro Monk & Munkz – Glitch.fm Show 2/15/2010

time February 16th by John-Michael authorTags: , , , , ,

Alright here is this weeks show!
We definately ran into some technical difficulties at the start. The audio didn’t kick in till a 1:45 into the recording.

Also the cable going into the laptop got lose a couple of times and reason for stops in audio. We are working on getting a new cable and Mic setup.

Munkz started off this week’s show with some trippy IDM. Solid track selection! Got to love the dark eeriness of this mix. Towards the end he stepped it up a notch. Unfortunately we still working to perfect the switch between us but you’ll know when my half starts when you hear a certain Phil Collins track =D

My half focuses more on the glitch hop side of things. Started off with a few lovestep tracks since I thought it would be appropriate since it was the day after Valentines day. Wanted to do some more lovestep but so much new stuff to drop that wanted to bring to the table.

Next week we’ll be a lot more prepared!
It’s only going to get better from here on out!

Munkz & Afro Monk – Liturgy of the Hours on Glitch.fm 2/15/2010

Hope you enjoy!

Random Update by Afro Monk

time February 11th by John-Michael authorTags: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

It’s been awhile since I write a legit post and not just a mix. The new addition to the Afro Monk team, Pierre, is doing a great job. I’m thrilled to have him onboard and having him contribue so much.

WMC is right around the courner and looks like its going to be unforgettable as usual. I can’t believe how involved I am with this one event. The past month I’ve shared e-mails with some of the most respected producers/DJs in the glitch game in my eyes.

My show has almost been on for a month now. I started off strong but now we working out all the kinks. My close friend Munkz has been joining me and dropping some dubstep bombs. I feel like it’s a great combo of glitch/IDM/trip-hop with the last hour having Munkz bring the dirty bass.

Overall things are moving along. I’ll be meeting some of the glitch.fm crew in 2 weeks in DC. I’m flying up to DC for a gig HipGnosis got. Looking forward to meeting him and a few others that will be there.

I’m on a total travel mind set right now. I hope to visit NY and possibily even play at an event there. Also considering a trip to Oregon to visit some close friends from glitch.fm. My birthday is in the summer and most likely going to Vegas for Defcon and hope to somehow find myself on the bill to play out there. Another project I’ve been thinking of doing is throwing an event in Seattle. There is a group of glitch.fm guys up there as well. Let’s not forget Lost in Bass in Boston is always an option in the future.

It’s amazing the people I’ve met since joining the Glitch.fm team. I’ve become close with people all over the world and hope to visit them all in the near future, even the Delicious Crew in New Zealand.

Afro Monk’s Archives on Glitch.fm

time February 5th by John-Michael authorTags: , , , , , ,

afroicon

Here are two mixes I’ve done in recent weeks. Both of them were broadcasted on Glitch.fm Live. I’m becoming quite a fan of being able to go on the air.

Afro Monk’s Late Night Trip Hop Hijack

This mix I did when I was feeling all emo and stuff. I’ve never really mixed trip-hop and haven’t mastered the art of beat matching so this can get a bit dodgy at times. This was more for the feel and listening to the songs. Poured out some of my favorite tunes in here. Later on in the mix I switched it up to play a little FL Breaks and into a pre-recorded Miami Bass mix that had there.

Afro Monk & Munkz – Glitch.fm – Liturgy of the Hours

This is the recording of my set on last weeks show. Can’t believe I have a weekly show. I decided to team up with my close friend Munkz for this. Figured I’d bring the glitch and he brings the whomp. We ended up doing a ghetto rig there and turned out his portion of the show sounded like complete crap so just uploading my first hour.

Klone – Dubconstep

time February 3rd by Pierre authorTags: , , , ,

klonedub
Artist: Klone
Title: Dubconstep
Cat # Muti048
UPC # 705105138404

Tracklisting:
1. A Lot Kooler
2. Out Of Earth
3. Chizzle Fried Grizzle
4. Want 2 Babylon
5. Hydra
6. Roaches

This march Klone will be back, last years ”The Push Effect” really got people to start talking about Klone and now he’s back with a new EP.

Combing the Glitcy and Bassy bits from the previous EP and putting then in a more Dubstep eviorment and alas we have “Dubconstep”. Personally I’m a more into the Glitch-Hop sound that on the last EP rather than this more Dubstepish sound, but it’s still a very good EP. The best track on this EP is  number 4 “Want to Babylon” I really like all the sound the the “structure” of the tune is really amazing. It seems like the three first tracks are more of the Dubstep kind then on the forth track Klone seems to go back a bit to his old more Glitch-hop sound and that’s something I really appreciate.

Don’t sleep on this one when it’s released, you KNOW that Muti Music delivers EVERY time!
